CAC 2010 - CHOICE Asia Conference, Singapore

CAC 2010 - CHOICE Asia Conference was held in Singapore from the 8th-10th October. The Malaysian delegates were the largest group who attended this conference. I believe it is because we have recruited quite a number of new CHOICEes who were interested to experience the conference and it's a combined group of the Penang English CHOICE and the Penang Tamil CHOICE members and not forgetting the KL CHOICE as well!

while the meeting was going on, the other delegates (thanks to the hosts) were doing a couple of MAD projects. One was a visit to Missionary of Charity and the other group went to St.Vincent's Home. it was an eye opening experience for these CHOICEes and i'm sure it made a difference to the people at those homes.

other than the MAD Projects, our wonderful Singaporean hosts also organised an "Amazing Race" for us. the stops were around Singapore which was a good, as we got a glimpse of the sights around Singapore. one of the stops was at the Casino at Marina Bay Sands to get a SG$5 chip. this item was to minus 15mins off from the total time duration. there were other challenges as well and we all had fun doing it!

then there was a Cultural Night Fellowship where everyone was to dress to their traditional costumes of their country. it was a very colourful and beautiful sight! everyone was in costume! there were even performances as well! Good Job guys!

after the conference, some of the Malaysian delegates, took extra days off to sight-see Singapore. they put up at the Singapore CHOICE Retreat House. it was comfortable and had a homey feeling. how nice if we could have a CHOICE house like that in Penang eh? hehehe

the group went to Marina Barrage to have the full view of the Singapore Flyer and the Marina Bay Sands hotel. that was quite a lovely view! then of course they went up the Singapore Flyer to get a 360 degrees view of Singapore! wonder if anyone felt sick? hahahha.. then of course, a day trip to Universal Studios!! u've got to ask them how it was! i'm sure you'll be hearing lots of stories!

so that was the trip to Singapore! everyone had a great time and i'm sure they would love to go back there again. :)
